Whoa. I maintain a spreadsheet of movies I've seen in theaters as well. I always thought my grand total of 858 movies wasn't bad...until now!

I've kept a database and/or spreadsheet for every movie I've seen since June 1984 (first entry: BREAKDANCE aka BREAKIN') and at the end of 2018 it reached 10,000 titles. 3,857 of those were in cinemas, the rest on TV, videotape, DVD/Blu or streaming.

I don't have a Top 100, but I do have a list of Top 5 Movies for every year since 1970:

"Favorite Films" is one thing, but you always needs a separate list of "Best Films" to convince the readers of SIGHT & SOUND that you're more tasteful and intelligent than you are.

To wit:

1. TOKYO STORY
2. LA REGLE DU JOU
3. L'ATALANTE
4. SHOAH
5. BICYCLE THIEVES
6. THE BATTLE OF ALGIERS
7. RASHOMON
8. ANDRE RUBLEV
9. PERSONA
10. KELLY'S HEROES

Scott, I like your composer/film list, and would love to see what favorite films your favorite composers scores, particularly Goldsmith and Barry.

Did you like the Zweig novel? If you haven't read CHESS STORY, that's one I would recommend, New York Review of Books edition (hey, they have a Father's Day sale going on this weekend! ;-)
